Re: Switzerland will always be Switzerland...

What a beautiful country, there is nowhere on Earth like here....people actually do take it very easy & enjoy what they were blessed with. Christmas is coming & although unlike (almost) everywhere else Santa doesn't smile.....there is no reason to believe that people are not happy or content here!

Business is as it always was, consistent but not groundbreaking.

People still take no risks, everything works & its still the safest country on the planet. But is that enough?

During a recession times can be hard unless you only really want peace & quiet. Jobs are scarce & becoming scarcer especially for foreigners with those who are SAP consultants (or those with related careers) only getting the real breaks. The Swiss don't change jobs as often as their underwear.

The money (pay) is better but what if there are very few jobs in the future for non-Swiss, how long must one be unemployed for (or is able to be)?

The dream is over, unless you are able to fully fit into this society, act & do everything the Swiss way then now maybe the time to leave.

There is no future for Switzerland as an international player, it had all its chances to become one of the most prominent countries in the world but it just didn't work out. What is left is a tourist paradise & a vaguely beneficial place to stash your cash. It is still however, one of the most beautifully preserved places you could ever wish for with a million to one chance of war ever destroying its enviable infrastructure.
Once again a contradictory thread from you, and your last one only just finished.
